    Many thanks for your help so far.

    The reset switch on this motherboard is also the button to switch the computer on. I am unable to persuade the computer to start and let me have access to the monitor, keyboard or mouse. The output from the Power Supply is live to all components but does not appear to complete the circuit to enable the components to function. I presume the reset button is the trigger that enables the Bios to make its necessary checks and fire up the system.

    You may have gathered by now that I'm at the bottom of the ladder when it comes to the innards of computers. Any light you can throw upon the subject will be appreciated.

    Hi,



    Don,t reset It.



    Use Ctrl/Alt/Del keys, and restart via other methods.

If you just setup this board & the reset switch does not work, than remove the connector & turn it 180 degrease & reconnect it.
If it still fails to reset. Use an Ohm meter & check the switch.
You can replace the switch from a local auto store or even a Radio Shack store. It's a simple two wire (bush button) switch.
Better than buying a new case. If your lucky you may be able to find a old PC & remove it's reset switch.

Good luck

I have two black wires in box attached to regular light switch & want to know if I can install a Skylark S-603PG single pole dimmer switch which has one black , one red&white, red and green wires


This is single-pole -or- 3-way dimmer
Manual shows on following link:
http://www.lutron.com/TechnicalDocumentLibrary/0301107A.pdf

1) Manual says: The red/white wire is not used in a single-pole application. Twist a wire
nut over this wire for a single-pole application.
2) Green wire connects to bare ground wire. Or bare ground to bare ground.
3) Connect dimmer-red and dimmer-black to either insulated wire that came off of old switch

My wall box only has a black & a white. Can I still use this timer?


You posted under GE 15069.
If you have different timer, then add a comment.

Yes you can use this timer.
http://waterheatertimer.org/GE-timers-and-manuals.html#15067

Here are wiring instructions
Timer might have blue wire instead of red wire.
Some timers do not have green wire.

How to wire this timer:
1) Green wire connects to bare copper wire.
2) Switch has 2 wires. Take switch wires and connect them to timer-black-wire and timer-red-wire. Choose either one for now.
3) In back of electric box are white wires twisted together and covered with wire nut. Connect timer-white to these wires. This will power timer electronics.
4) If electric box does not have white wires described above, then connect timer-white to bare ground, along with timer-green wire.
5) Turn on electricity, and push ON-OFF button. If lights come on, timer is wired correctly. If lights do not come on, then reverse timer-red and timer-black wires.

I have two white wire bond together, then two red wires and two black wires how do I wire this switch?


You posted under 3-way switch.
Example of 3-way switch is a hallway with switch at each end of hallway.
If you have a different switch, then instructions below do not apply, so add a comment.

1) Your old switch has 3 screws: 1 dark screw and 2 brass screws.
New switch has same color screws.
If you can remember where wires went on old switch, then re-connect on new switch using color-coded screws.
This is why I learned to make notes or take a photo before disconnecting electrical device.

2) If you are uncertain where wires went on old switch, then we can test.
The testing takes more words than it does work, and it will resolve problem.
You are replacing one 3-way switch, but other 3-way switch is still in the wall and is wired correctly.
We will call the other switch: switch2
Move switch2 to down position.
Separate wires at new switch for testing.
Use ordinary two wire tester.
Tape tester leads to wood to keep hands away from power
Turn power ON.
Test each wire to bare ground wire.
Tester lights up on Hot wire. Mark this wire.

Now move switch2 to up position and repeat test.
Tester lights up on Hot wire so mark this wire.
>If same wire is Hot in each test, then this wire connects to dark screw. If this wire was also connected with another wire on old switch, then connect that other wire to brass screw also.
>If two different wires tested Hot, then these are the travelers, and each traveler connects to a brass screw. One traveler on one brass screw and other traveler on other brass screw, in any order.

Leave switch2 in up position. One wire is Hot and has power.
Test this wire to all other wires in box, except bare ground wire.
Tester lights up on Neutral wire(s). This wire(s) is not used in the 3-way circuit, so put a wire nut over Neutral.

How do I wire a single light to a on/off switch


Add a comment and say what wires you have in case following answer misses your mark.

As a general rule, there is one cable that comes from breaker box.
There is another cable that goes to light fixture.
Each cable has 1 Black, 1 White and 1 Bare ground.

So you have 2 Blacks, 2 Whites and 2 Grounds.
White wires twist together and are covered by wire nut.
Black wires each connect to a different brass-colored screw on light switch. In any order.
Bare ground wires connect to green screw.

If light fixture has wires, then black goes to black and white to white, and ground to ground.
If light fixture has screws, then black goes to brass screw, white to silver screw, and ground to green screw.

I have connected the timer to the power source etc as directed. The red light comes on, indicating there is power--my model does not have a timer "on/off" switch so I cannot begin programming,...


You have to identify timer.
Say which buttons are on timer face and what wires the timer has.
What red light comes on?
Add a comment with specific information so I can identify the timer.

Intermatic, Brinks, Aube and UPM timers wire differently than other timers.

Swylightlight, Wattstopper, Leviton, Lutron, Woods, GE, Utilitec, Hagar, Sylvania, Westek, Intermatic (no battery) are generally wired in following manner:

1) Timer-green-wire connects to bare ground wire.
2) Switch has 2 wires. Take switch wires and connect to timer-black-wire and timer-red-wire (sometimes this is blue wire). Choose either wire for now.
3) In back of electric box are white wires twisted together and covered with wire nut. Connect timer-white wire to these wires.
4) If electric box does not have white wires described above, then connect timer-white to bare ground wire along with green wire.
5) Turn on electricity, and push ON-OFF button, or activation button. If lights come on, timer is wired correctly. If lights do not come on, then reverse timer-red and timer-black wires.

If timer is wired correctly, and timer does not work, then timer is defective.

Describe your how to install a ipp15-1l Problem


1) First of all you need to determine what device you are replacing. Single-pole or 3-way.
Add a comment any time

Remember you can also take advantage of fixya phone service, where expert speaks to you over the phone while you are installing device. This service is not free.

2) If you are replacing single-pole switch, that is where one switch controls the Load (light fan motor)
Here are instructions for installing ipp15-11 Motion switch for single-pole replacement.
Old switch has 2 insulated wires plus bare ground wire.
Ipp15 bare copper ground wire will connect to bare copper ground wire.

Separate switch wires for testing.
Use ordinary two prong tester, tape tester leads to wood sticks to keep hands away from power.
Turn power ON.
Test each wire to bare ground wire.
Tester lights up on Hot wire. This wire will connect to ipp15 screw marked BL black.
The other wire that came off switch will connect to ipp15 screw marked RD red
Hot wire is identified.
Located in back of box are white wires that are twisted together and covered with wire nut. Remove this nut.
Now test Hot wire to all other wires in box, excluding bare ground wire.
Tester lights up on neutral wires. ipp15 screw marked WH white connects to neutral wires.
If your box does not have neutral wire, then connect ipp15 WH white to bare ground wires.

4) If you are replacing 3-way switch, that is where 2 different switches control the same Load (light fan motor.
3-way switch has 3 insulated wires and a bare ground wire.
Note screw colors on old 3-way switch. Dark screw is the Load wire. The 2 brass screws are the travelers.
From the ipp15 instructions, it appears you will need Viza Coordinating Switch Remote plus a sensor device to accomplish the 3-way installation.
If you have both of these devices and want free written instructions, then add a comment and I will verbalize contents from the manual.
Also you can pay a fixya expert to talk over the phone.

GE 15086 programmable timer replaces single-pole switch only.
Single pole means 1 device turns Load on-off.
3-way is where 2 devices turn Load on-off, for example 2 switches located in hallway.

Your existing timer has white, black and blue wires.
Your new timer has white, black, red and green wires.
Green wire connects to bare ground wire in every occasion with every wiring device.

Electricians don't guess, they test the other wires.

Remove old timer.
Separate wires for testing.
Turn on power.
Tape ordinary tester leads to wood sticks to keep hands away from power.
Test each wire to bare ground wire.
Tester will light up on Hot wire. The Hot wire will connect to timer black wire.
Now test Hot wire to each other wire (except bare ground)
Tester will light up on Neutral wire. Neutral wire connects to timer white wire.

The remaining wire connects to timer red wire.
After connecting timer, push manual override button to check that Load turns on-off.

Manual override on 15086 is the door that covers buttons > use door as push button to check Load.
Next, program the timer.
Programming is straightforward and similar to other timers.
If you have a problem, add a comment.

You can also take advantage of Fixya phone support. Expert will walk you through the steps for a price.

I have a utilitech 7 day in wall digital timer and would like to install it but have no clue how to. can you get me started


You want to install Utilitec in-wall 7-day timer that has 4 wires: red, white, black and green.

You are replacing a single pole switch that controls a light or several lights.
There is not a second switch that controls same lights.

The switch has 3 wires.
Generally there are two insulated wires and a bare ground wire.
Add a comment any time.

Here's what to do:
I have tested these timers for wiring and programming.
Get started and instructions will make sense as you go.
Turn off circuit beaker to switch.
Remove old switch.

1) Timer-green-wire connects to bare ground wire using one of the yellow wire nuts included with timer. Put two wires together so they are even at ends. Put wire nut over wire ends. Rotate wire nut clockwise between fingers until very tight.

2) Switch has 2 insulated wires. Take switch wires and connect them to timer-black-wire and timer-red-wire using two more yellow wire nuts. Choose either one for now. You may have to reverse these two wires in a minute.

3) In back of electric box are white wires twisted together and covered with wire nut. Remove the wire nut, but do not untwist the white wires. Connect timer-white to these wires. Then put original wire nut back over white wires.

4) If electric box does not have white wires described in step 3, then connect timer-white to bare ground, along with timer-green wire.

5) Turn on electricity, and push ON-OFF button. If lights come on, timer is wired correctly. If lights do not come on, then reverse timer-red and timer-black wires from step 2.

Flickering bulbs


You posted under EJ500 Intermatic battery-operated timer.
If you have different timer, add a comment.
I have tested EJ500 timer.

A) If this is new single-pole installation and lights click on-off when timer turned on, then you connected red wire where blue wire should be connected.

Manual says for single pole switch:
Timer-black-wire to Hot; Timer-blue-wire to Load (lights)
Here's how to wire timer correctly:
1) Timer-green-wire connects to bare ground wire.
2) Switch has 2 wires. Take switch wires and connect them to timer-black-wire and timer-blue-wire. Choose either one for now.
3) Put wire nut on red wire.
4) Turn on electricity, and push ON-OFF button. If lights come on, timer is wired correctly. If lights do not come on, then reverse timer-blue and timer-black wires.

B) If you are replacing 3-way switch, view wiring diagrams shown on link below, and then add a comment saying exact color of wires. To wire this timer for 3-way can require additional wire between switches. This is because EJ500 blue wire must always go to Load (light, fan, motor)
http://waterheatertimer.org/ST01C-program.html#EJ500-wire

C) If this is older timer that stopped working, check your bulbs. Then check timer battery. Manual says if timer stops working and bulbs are good, and battery good, then reset timer and reprogram. How to reset timer. Press reset button while holding down Next/ON-OFF button.
EJ500 manual has long list of programming instructions: Add a comment if you forgot parts of programming.

Review:
Black goes to Hot wire from breaker box
Red wire goes to Load (light, fan, motor)
White wire goes to Neutral
Green to bare copper ground wire

Orientation:
Your original switch had 2 wires plus bare ground.
One of these wires is Hot, the other goes to Load.
You said original wires are Red and Black

How do you find Hot wire?
-Your original switch had 2 wires.
-Remove timer from box.
-Pull original 2 wires out where you can test them
-Turn on power
-Use regular tester
-Tape tester leads to wood sticks so your hands stay away from voltage
-Power is on
-Test each original wire to bare ground wire
-When tester lights up, that is Hot wire ... this wire connects to Black wire on timer
- The other wire goes to Load so it connects to Red wire on timer

How to test for Neutral wire
Test Hot wire to your white wires - No need to untwist them.
When tester lights up, that is Neutral
White wire from timer connects to Neutral.
Green goes to ground wire.

How to reset timer
I'm not sure which timer you have. Probably GE 15086. Reset is small round button below HOUR button. Use paper clip and push-in reset until timer flashes 12 o'clock.
